Kylie Gore Wood - Founder
I’m a kiwi girl who has had a lifelong love affair with Fiji. I’ve been living in Nadi, Fiji for over six years and I want to share my experience of Fiji with you. The Fiji that has helped to heal me and taken me on a journey to places I never thought I would go, physically, mentally and spiritually.
I grew up in the middle of no where deep down South in NZ, my family owned a Hotel and thermal pool resort. Here I was home schooled due to the isolation of the area and it is here I guess where my roots in caring for people began. As a family we moved north to Auckland where I attended Kings college, became a beauty Therapist, Studied nursing, got married became a mother and lactation consultant and then moved to Fiji.
I’ve been the “fat girl” at 132kgs and the “skinny girl” at 52kgs, I’ve tried eating, drinking, starving, drugs, surgery, changing careers, moving countries and all manner of ways to try and “fix” my body and its mental, spiritual and physical condition. All this self harm done under the facade of finding happiness but in actuality it was all just causing me more pain.
Fiji helped me heal there is a simplicity of living here and a slow pace of life that somehow helps you see what you really need to be happy and healthy.
Now i’m a (happily:) divorced 36 year old single Mum raising my son in a tropical paradise. I have gotten to a place in life where I finally know what I want to do, I want to help people, make a difference in someone else’s life. When I look back I see that all the paths I have been down have actually been leading me to this, to helping people. But my personal cup wasn’t full before, how could I offer people kindness, love, caring and healing, when in fact my cup was broken and leaking (I did try filling it with copious amounts of wine but that didn’t work haha)
So folks here I am offering all that I have and can offer, in the hopes that I can help you to make a change for the better, to help you realise your worth. If someone can cross my path and take with them a little more awareness of themselves, if you can go home from a retreat happier and healthier then my mission is complete.
